Certified Scrum Product Owner
Though each CSPO course varies depending on the instructor, all Certified Scrum Product Owner courses focus on Scrum from a product owner's perspective. Graduates will receive the CSPO designation. All CSPO course are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.
Scrum is a proven lean and agile approach to delivering results, a simple “inspect and adapt” framework used to organize work for maximum efficiency and effectiveness using three roles, three ceremonies, and three artifacts. One of the keys to a successful scrum project is an effective Product Owner. The Product Owner sets the product vision and is responsible for transforming it into a successful product. The Product Owner represents the voice of the team, and is responsible for decisions targeted at reaching the product goals.
In this class, participants will learn the core skills to define and manage a prioritized product backlog, to make informed decisions as well as to create accurate and realistic product and release plans. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and understanding of the role of the Product Owner, as well its importance on the Scrum team. Participants will leave the class equipped with knowledge and tools to effectively support and lead their teams. You will learn how to create realistic release plans and then proactively steer the team in its successful delivery.
This two-day Product Owner certification course provides everything you need to be an effective customer to a Scrum team. On completion, participants are registered as Certified Product Owners (CPOs), which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable materials and information are available exclusively to CPOs.
